Corporate Accountability and Democracy

" Corporate Accountability and Democracy " is taken from Bernie Sanders Presidential campaign website. I support 100% with what he says! (Please visit his site for more details)

In America today, corporate greed and corruption is destroying the social and economic fabric of our society, where a small group of ultra-wealthy CEOs are making the decisions that increasingly determine our economic, environmental and political future.

For too long, these greedy corporate CEOs have rigged the tax code, killed market competition, and crushed the lives and power of workers and communities across America.

Year after year we’ve seen wages slashed and thousands of workers laid off, all while the richest corporate CEOs pay themselves huge bonuses.

They got away with it through a broken campaign finance system, where a few large campaign donations can get you the ear of any politician.

Now Donald Trump, the most corrupt president in history, has brought this corporate corruption straight into the Oval Office.

Let’s end to the corporate greed ruining our country once and for all.

  1. Fundamentally shift the wealth of the economy back into the hands of the workers who create it.

  2. Give workers an ownership stake in the companies they work for.

  3. Break up corrupt corporate mergers and monopolies, including reviewing all mergers that have taken place during the Trump administration and institute new merger guidelines

  4. Finally make corporations pay their fair share of taxes by reversing Trump’s corporate tax breaks and closing corporate tax loopholes to raise up to $3 trillion over 10-years.
